Epic Games Announces #FreeFortnite Cup, Last Chance for Every Platform to Play With Each Other
By Nathan Fusco
Epic Games announced the #FREEFORTNITE Cup which will be the last time every platform will be able to play with one another. Since Google and Apple have removed the game from the app stores, everyone's current version of the game will not update, meaning when Chapter 2 Season 4 hits on Aug. 27, mobile players will be left behind.
That's why Epic Games wants to continue to put pressure on Apple and give players a chance to compete in a cross-platform tournament.
Epic Games Announces #FreeFortnite Cup
The tournament will take place on Sunday, Aug. 23.
If you head to the in-game compete tab, you'll see when the event starts in your region. Log on during the time period and select the #FreeFortnite Cup playlist. You'll have four hours to complete up to 12 matches and win prizes.
#FreeFortnite Cup Scoring System
- Active Time - 1 point for every 3 minutes on the BR island.
- Eliminations - 1 point per Elim
- Victory Royale - 10 points for each Victory Royale
#FreeFortnite Cup Prizes
Anyone that scores a minimum of 10 points will receive the in-game skin Tart Tycoon Outfit. He's the "bad guy" from the advert. The top 20,000 players will receive an IRL hat.
Additionally, they're giving away 1,200 pieces of gaming hardware (phones, consoles, and PC’s). You have to be in the top 1,200 players to receive one of these prizes.
